the debate, your reaction. follow our live coverage on c- span, c-span radio, and c- span.org. >> defense secretary leon panetta today said it was obvious the killing of four americans at a u.s. consulate in libya was a terrorist attack. he also said more attacks on american soldiers by afghan soldiers are likely. the remarks came this afternoon with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. >> since the general dempsey just returned from the war front, we thought it would be worth making some comments on afghanistan -- since the general did see just returned from the war front -- since general dempsey just returned from the war front. i will invite general dempsey to share his comments as well. last week, we completed the drawdown of 33,000 surge forces that the president ordered to afghanistan in december 2009. as i said in announcing this milestone last week, it is clear that the surge allowed us to turn a very important corner in 2011. it accomplished the primary objectives of reversing the taliban's momentum on the battlefield and dramatically increased the size and capability of th
last october. mostly because of concern about the fiscal cliff. we could see major cuts in defense spending. given it gets 70% of its sales from the department of defense you can see why people would be nervous. however, i think those worries might be baked into the stock at those levels. it might be exaggerated. plus xls sports a juicy 4% yield. even if the worse does happen they're paying you to wait for washington to sort itself out. the other thing it represents a niche area within the budget. it's not one of those big old cold war programs that they have. i don't know if we should even be that worried. among the other things the company makes is highly secure communication systems, energy annal just, warfare systems, night vision goggles. it also has an information technical side where they do everything from aircraft traffic management for the faa and networks. that's probably less sensitive to the budget cuts we're all so worried about. last quarter was quite strong. if we don't fall off the fiscal cliff this could be the right stock to own. even if we do smash into the fisc

defense attorney, stood on a downtown los angeles sidewalk and he watched his chief investigator seized by the police caught in the act of bribing a juror. a few weeks later, darrow was indicted on two counts of bribery, and burt franklin, the investigator, agreed to testify against them. he swore that darrow had ordered him to pay $4000 to jurors who agreed to vote not guilty. and darrow was at that time at the height of the same one of america's foremost trial lawyers, political leaders and populist champions, and his careened staggered off track there in southern california. caught up by shame he left his wife one reunite for the apartment of his mistress. with a revolver in one pocket and a whiskey barrel -- whiskey bottle in the other, he sat down and vowed to kill them so. she brought out two glasses. they sat at a wooden table underneath one of those swinging bare lightbulbs. and fortunately for us she talked him out of it. he went on to create an american architect, lawyer for the little guy, advocate for the common folk. poking his thumbs, regarding the jury from beneath that c
. a footnote, this might be a pyrrhic victory for the defense if they win because even if they win with the summers issue, the government can still argue that it was a legitimate, they had a reasonable suspicion, and, therefore the evidence obtained could still be admissible. i was asked to talk about another case which is a case -- >> why don't you take a minute and a half? >> maryland vs. king, and the question is here to the liberty of the state and federal laws that allow for the collection of swabs of cells from the insides of mouths of people who have been arrested. there as 27 states who have laws allow officers to swab the inside of any mouth of anybody arrested, and that gets put into the system who helps to identify the person, but also connect them to other crimes. in this case in maryland, king was arrested for burglary, swabbed, it comes back with a hit for a case involving rape. the court of appeals ultimately found it should have been suppressed, thereby invalidating the law in maryland which is the law in 26 other states allowing that swabbed people are arrested. th
, there is a defense called the insanity defense which never works as most of us know because we don't recognize it. should we recognize it, that's an interesting question. should we have a more robust concept of diminished responsibility in light of the understanding that some people have less control over their preferences and desires or should we have better sentencing schemes or get rid of incarceration and come up with different models of trying to deal with punishment once we understand people have wrong selections. i think those are all interesting questions, but is there free will? well, the fact that almost everybody in the audience raised either their right or left hand contemplated it and were quickly able to act and respond. that to me says, yes, there is. now what do we want to do about it? now that we understand that those of us in the audience or up here that like chocolate cake may not have control over it, how do we want to account for that if at all in the criminal justice system? to date, we haven't. in the future, we may wish to. >> i agree with that. i think that, first of all,
